The impact of critically ill children on paediatric ED medication timeliness.
The presence of critically ill patients may impact care for other ED patients. The researchers evaluated whether the presence of a critically ill child was associated with the time to (1) receipt of the first medication among other patients, and (2) administration of diagnosis-specific medications. They concluded that the presence of critically ill patients was associated with a delay in medication administration to others.

Hospital-level variation in ICU admission and critical care procedures for patients hospitalized for pulmonary embolism.
The researchers examined the relationship between intensive care unit (ICU) use for patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and cost, mortality, readmission, and procedure use in 263 hospitals. They found wide variations in ICU admission rates for acute PE without a detectable impact on mortality, cost, or readmission.
